Clear was one of the first NM fragrances I sampled - honestly, I can't remember what it smelled like. From the comments on the womens boards, I'm getting: mint, fresh laundered shirt, apple and soft musky drydown.
When we had 'Neil Morris Day' on the womens board Neil (who is Whiffman here on Basenotes) posted a little behind-the-scenes on Clear, which I copied below:
'...CLEAR is based on a memory of a bike ride I took back in the early 80's with my dear friend Jim, who now lives in San Francisco. We chose a GORGEOUS morning in September and headed out from Boston towards Concord and Lincoln. Beautiful, beautiful countryside, winding roads, rock walls lining them, trees with leaves just beginning to turn, a light, refreshing breezy day. A 10! Or maybe an 11! Around noon we decided to have lunch, which we had packed, and looked for a spot to relax. We stopped at the most lovely open field you could imagine, tall grass, flowers and linden trees everywhere around us. We ate our lunch and chatted as old friends do. I was laying on the grass, hands behind my head looking up to big, puffy white clouds and the bluest of blue skies, the scent of Linden and Mint riding on the breeze. Grapefruit slices for dessert. A perfect, CLEAR day!
The memory of this day has stayed in my heart all these years and I'm brought back to it every time I wear CLEAR!
